, in much of upstate new york, they've canceled preemptively the flights out of there for tomorrow and here's why. here is the big snow picture. kind of the snow sweet spot from cleveland through i-90 and in toward buffalo, rochester, syracuse, so it is all lifting to the north. the same storm that we have seen bring feet of snow elsewhere. so going a little bit closer, you can see very dark white is heavy snow, maybe 1, 2 inches an hour. and right along the lakefront, cleveland, erie, buffalo and points down. so i-86, i-90, i-80, i-80 tonight we'll watch the snow lift farther north and then driving perilous conditions tomorrow. really in upstate new york and western new york. and part of the problem is is that we thought thehave these i strong winds. right now indy gusting to 33 miles an hour. as far south as nashville, cleveland, as well, 32-mile-per-hour wind gusts. and that axis of winds is pushing into the northeast for upstate no, late tonight and really balance of tomorrow. in terms of the blizzard, there's the blizzard warning now. it's down to just a few counties. in north central

like pennsylvania and new york. some minor disruptions during the day today. the bigger story is what happens during the day tomorrow. we think we're going to see a widespread severe weather outbreak probably in eastern texas, louisiana, mississippi alabama, and georgia. we may see numerous tornadoes, some of them could be on the strong side. so we urge you to stay vigilant if you're in the southeast. what we also have going on on the northern side of this system is a lot of heavy snow. it's good news and bad news. the good news is a white christmas in places like oklahoma city, little rock and maybe southern parts of st. louis. the bad news is this storm moves into the ohio valley, great lakes, and interior northeast on wednesday. some places seeing over a foot of snow, and that's going to cause major travel problems as we head on into wednesday, especially, and probably thursday morning as well. jeff? >> jeff, thank you very much. >>> ten days after the connecticut school shooting, the debate over gun control continues after the national rifle association took q
